Lower Caswell house is set in 2.7 acres of glorious mature gardens and surrounded by open countryside. This Grade II listed property and former farmhouse dates back to 1664 and has been thoughtfully modernised and renovated over recent years resulting in a spacious and very comfortable family home. The accommodation is surprisingly light and airy with most rooms enjoying a double aspect, over the extensive mature, landscaped gardens. In brief and amounting to circa 3752 sq ft in total, the interior is arranged as follows; entrance hall, cloakroom, drawing room with inglenook fireplace and archway through to a sitting room, formal dining room, again with inglenook, second sitting room/study, family room, newly fitted kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, cloakroom and shower room. On the first floor are two large double bedrooms, the master bedroom with dressing room and ensuite bathroom, the second bedroom has a large walk in cupboard/wardrobe which has the potential to provide a second ensuite, plus a family bathroom. On the second floor are two further double bedrooms and another room again providing potential for a shower room. It is generally considered that the kitchen extension could lend itself to providing additional accommodation to the first floor thereby providing additional bedroom accommodation. It should be noted that any extension would be subject to obtaining the necessary planning permissions and building regulations consents. Externally the gardens are a delightful feature, being beautifully landscaped and stocked with an abundance of mature trees and shrubs, divided into several areas including tennis court, orchard and small woodland. The property also benefits from two double garages, timber sheds and a greenhouse. There is an attractive open fronted stone barn providing an ideal place for outdoor entertaining and bbq.
